Elaine Grassbaugh of Columbus, Ohio writes:
“Agriculture colleges across the U.S. are experiencing low enrollment rates, especially in the area of horticulture. This is mainly due to the cost of a 4- or 5-year bachelor’s degree. Also, many two-year community colleges now offer this major.
“How can a department in a major land grant university (Ohio State) attract these students back to their four-year programs by increasing enrollment in these horticulture departments?”
